Dream Bakery Houei Xai.

Great place for breakfast, or get take away for the days ride.

Located about 100 metres further on from the immigration soi, on the river side.

Excellent coffee and WIFI.

Houyxai Keaw Restaurant. Houei Xai Laos.

Also known as the restaurant with the big yellow roof.

Located right on the river next to the immigration building, but you need to enter the restaurant from the main road.

You can see it from the Thai side of the river, and you cant miss it when crossing on the ferry.

The roof is an impressive piece of work.

Highly recommended if you're staying in Houei Xai, or even drop in for lunch.

Some Houei Xai local night life = you need transport

On a cold chilly night mid-Cronoa virus scare there were not many people out in HX, but these are the top 3 places I believe.
